Our Holy Father Clement, Pope of Rome
St. Paul's Letter to the Philippians 3:20-21; 4:1-3
Psalm 115.8,3 (116.14,12)
I will pay my vows to the Lord in the presence of all his people.
Verse: What shall I render to the Lord for all that he has given me?
The reading is from St. Paul's Letter to the Philippians 3:20-21; 4:1-3
Brethren, our commonwealth is in heaven, and from it we await a Savior, the Lord Jesus Christ, who will change our lowly body to be like his glorious body, by the power which enables him even to subject all things to himself. Therefore, my brethren, whom I love and long for, my joy and crown, stand firm thus in the Lord, my beloved. I entreat Euodia and I entreat Syntyche to agree in the Lord. And I ask you also, true yokefellow, help these women, for they have labored side by side with me in the gospel together with Clement and the rest of my fellow workers, whose names are in the book of life.
